Jim McDaniels: BUY A NEW CORD:! BOTH ENDS OF THE CORD GO BAD, FIXING ONE WILL ONLY LAST A
I FIXED MY OVERHEATED BROKEN L SHAPED CONNECTOR CORD 13" MACBOOK PRO.
I BOUGHT A REPLACEMENT CORD FOR $10 W/SHIPPING ON EBAY-I CHOOSE THE T
SHAPED CONNECTOR INSTEAD BECAUSE I BELIEVE IT IS HEAVIER DUTY THAN THE L
AND THEY ARE INTERCHANGABLE.
I SAW A YOUTUBE FOR EASILY POPPPING THE BOX OPEN WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIARS
AND SOLDERING THE NEW CORD.
TO OPEN THE POWER BOX, SIMPLY SWING OPEN IT'S CORD STORAGE WINGS AND PLACE
NEEDLE NOSE PLIARS TIPS INTO THE EDGES THE WINGS FOLD INTO.
FORCEFULLY OPEN THE NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS WHICH WILL POP OPEN THE POWER BOX
GLUED SPLIT CLAM SHELL SEAM.
PLACE THE POWER BOX ON A TABLE WITH THE PLIARS PUSHING DOWNWARD AGAINST THE
BOX-TABLE-YOU'LL HAVE TO KEEP THE POWER BOX FROM MOVING/PLIARS TIPS FROM
COMING OUT BY PLACING THE POWER BOX AGAINST A STATIONARY OBJECT.
THE CORD STORAGE WINGS AND THEIR DEPLOYING SPRINGS WILL NOW FALL-COME OUT.
I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO REMOVE THE CLAM SHELL HALFS COMPLETELY, JUST ENOUGH
TO GRAB THE WIRES.
CUT THE OLD CORD LEAVING AS MUCH OF IT'S WHITE AND BLACK WIRES ON THE POWER
STRIP THE OLD WIRES ENOUGH TO SOLDER TO THE NEW WIRES BLACK AND WHITE
USE NARROW STRIPS OF ELECTRIC TAPE TO HOLD THE MATCHING COLOR NEW/OLD WIRES
TOGETHER FOR SOLDERING, THEN SOLDER.
ELECTRICAL TAPE THE SOLDIERED BARE ENDS ADEQUATELY AND PUSH BACK INTO THE
CAREFULLY LINE EVERYTHING UP.
PLUG IT IN TO THE WALL AND THE COMPUTER FOR A QUICK WORKING TEST BEFORE
PLACE SOME SUPER GLUE ON THE BROKEN OPEN POWER BOX SEAMS.
SNAP EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER NOT FORGETTING TO REINSTALL THE WINGS AND
THEIR DEPLOYING SPRING.
HOLD THE POWER CLAM CASE HALFS TIGHTLY CLOSED TO ALLOW THE GLUE TO BOND.
WHILE HOLDING, PLACE CLEAR STRIPS OF SCOTCH TAPE OVER THE GLUED SHELL SEAMS
SO YOU CAN REMOVE YOUR HANDS AND BE DONE AND TO INSURE THE SHELL WILL NOT
COME APART AS THE GLUE CURES OVERNIGHT.
PLUG IT IN, YOU'RE DONE!
HOPEFULLY THE NEW CORD WILL LAST A GOOD LONG TIME BUT IT'S NOT TO HARD TO
REPLACE AGAIN FOR $10 AND ABOUT A 30 MINUTE JOB.
This problem is caused by our current world system that does not do what is
best for everyone. Check out equal money org
javier chacon: Thanks men.... very helpful.
Byron Coetsee: Dont be a dumass and unplug it first!
jepper333: haha a mac tutorial made on a windows movie maker ;)
576nathanielsj: @Iggyocracy its just cheaper to slap crap it lol
usbreaks: Great help bro ....Thanks
TheLeoGrr: A magnet LOL it's a ferrite for RF protection....
xXFIREWIREXx: I heard the house fire raged on for 2 days.
Legendary Records: Thanks for making this video Im a businessman, a student, and a graphic
designer and macbook my plug came apart on me and didn't know what to do
aside from buying a new one so when I seen your video lets just say "You
saved my business reputation and student consistency!" Thank you!
Senzafin4: God, great job!
Frank Weijers: Great work, thanks! One question: the wire to the magnetic end that clicks
on our Macbook Pro's, it has two leads actually: the inner core wire, and
the outer wire. Do I understand correctly that the core - wire should be
connected to the white wire inside the power brick? So white = inner black
= outer I was so enthusiastic and started working right away but forgot to
check how the lead is connected to the black and white wires inside :-)
Schlingsi: And it worked! ta
Stefan Paul Goetsch: Worked! Thx for the walkthrough.
JerseyKac92: Good Video! I did all of the with just a pair of scissors!
Ryan Ray: Done! Thank you!
michor10: Thanks for the great tip, man! Worked like a charm with those nose pliers.
Autofocus Creations: thanks for this vid bro. it helped me fixed charger.
OzVidGod: This guy is making it up as you go along... To get the case opened up
easily, put the power supply in a vice, longways, with the apple logo
facing up, and slowly squeeze the vice jaws closed on the lower half of the
case. Using a bladed screwdriver and a hammer, gently tap the lower case,
and the top half will come free. Lever the top off gently with the
screwdriver, and after you have done the repairs properly, not like this
joker, the case will click back together nicely,
enrico martiini: Thanks
pedrocaldas3: Thanks a lot!! Yesterday I have exactly problem, and with your help I
resolved it with no problems. Thanks a lot bro ;)
iUseiMacs: Did that cable melt?!
Samyap9491: Thks man! It really works. Helps me save money!
Adam Hyland: worked for me too thanks man
crazydilg: Thank you so much for your frontier knowledge, which may help save us
wrecking the whole things. Cheers from Darryl and Chris, Australia.
Bishop: lol don't be a dumbass
mikentosh: I found some replacement cables on eBay...Only saw MB+MBP 13" listed, but
its got the same plug as my '07 Macbook Pro 17" The standard little white
plug...plugs straight in. 'Buy it Now' $20 My cord is shredded just before
the magnet. The repair at that end looks like a pain...Don't the 4 pins get
different voltages? 20 bucks for a new cable seems like the 'path of least
resistance' to me. <-- Hey, an electronics joke! Sort of... :-)
coipelD: Great vid. Sorry for others needing to cut case. Looks like they had fun
though. A note on prying the case open at the ears. I had a little
difficulty popping it open with the ears on. If the ears are carefully
removed, the needle-nose pliers can go deeper into the brick and have more
surface area to pry against. Do it on both sides. Case pops open a little
easier. Thanks again mrbigbusiness1971
onlinejones: Thanks. It works. Didn't have a glue gun or a zip tie so I used gaffer
tape. Also wound gaffer tape round the start of the cable to stiffen it up
a bit so hopefully it won't go in the same place again.
Mike Wise: Holy damn. I just repaired mine and I strongly advise to use a screw
terminal for both wires. I scraped the excessive plastic of of the
terminals and they fit in perfectly in the open space (ditch the black
magnet piece). No glue or soldering needed.
Tony Fitzgibbon Fiddle Player: Well put together video!
metelegalleta: Thank you very much :) i just fixed mine... it came out way better than
yours... but I cheated and asked an engineer to help me ;)
Davide Candiloro: thank you 1000x! fixed GF's brick! For those trying with
older/newer/different models, the inside of mine was covered by copper
sheets, pasted and soldered to the circuit board... so the wires have to be
intact from the interruption point to the circuit, and long enough
Nathan Lord: cheers for this, worked a treat! just repaired mine today using this
tutorial. Didn't have the glue but used some electrical tape instead and
now its charging perfecto.
vashunas: Thanks. Work perfect. Peace and grace !
sdbvideo: Yeah, pretty getto, could be much nicer.
suvanic: Thanks!! This really helped!!
Darren Hunter: Cool, absolutely cool! Just tried the prizing open method with pliers,
worked a treat. THANKS!! Just need my replacement MagSafe connector/lead
and off I go... I added your vid to iFixIt so it'll help more peeps!
Diego Freniche: Thank you very much! I've opened the case without breaking it! The other
methods are just brute force. This is pure brain
thee aldeen: . : that's not a magnet -- it's a ferrite filter -- i just had to be the
nancy-pants : P
Ricardo Parra: I concur, this video is the best around, please note that there are already
cables available on ebay, complete from the magsafe connector through the
soldered pins, no need to re utilize anything. I bought one and hope to
install it per your tutorial.
gimmespamnow: Movie sucks. Hate the music.
Bianca Ford: The powerpoint isn't working for me....could ACTUALLY do the
tutorial....like....speak through each step?
E90PAT: do the directions of the wire matter?!
AVANROTCIV: Thanks, you saved my day.
Robert Lavoie: Thanks for the great video. I can use my computer again without waiting to
get another brick and saved some money too!
Rafael Fontanillas: I fix my charger!!!! Thanks
